"Groups where the centers of the irreducible characters form a chain"
Abstract: Throughout our talk, all groups will be finite. We
consider groups where the centers of the irreducible characters form a
chain. We obtain two alternate characterizations of these groups. One of
these characterizations involves the centers of all quotients of the
group. The other characterization looks at finding a chain of normal
subgroups that have a given problem. We obtain some information
regarding the structure of these groups. In particular, we obtain a
necessary and sufficient condition for a nested group to be nilpotent.
Using our results, we are able to classify those groups where the
kernels of the irreducible characters form a chain. We also classify the
groups where the kernels of the nonlinear irreducible characters form a
chain. This generalizes a result of Qian and Wang that answered a
question that was posed by Berkovich.
A GVZ-group is a group where every irreducible character vanishes off
its center. We consider some alternate definitions of nested groups, and
we show for GVZ-groups, that these different definitions are equivalent.
We present examples that show that these different definitions are not
equivalent for all groups. We show that a result of Nenciu regarding
nested GVZ groups is really a result about nested groups. We give strong
results regarding nested groups that are nilpotent of nilpotence class
2. Finally, we obtain an alternate proof of a theorem of Isaacs
regarding the existence of p-groups with a given set of irreducible
